About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.
The lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. family:";">

Unstampabelles challenge - mixed media with a twist to alter something

The challenge at Unstampabelles this month is mixed media with a twist to alter something.
I altered the cover of a Stampin Up journal book

Started with the blank notebook

Painted with lumiere paints
Then added lace, photo, papers from Bearly Mine Designs and Pininkie, Butterfly and frame diecuts, 
pictures, stickers and glitter.

My favourite things are Angels, Fairies, Teddy Bears, butterflys and flowers.

I am sorry the photo is not very clear, I only have  a little cheap camera.    I usually scan my cards and layouts but this was too thick to go in the scanner.

This month we are sponsored by Bizzy Bec's store and the prize is a Marianne Die

I hope you will go over and see the lovely projects by the design team and join in the challenge.

Love this Margaret! Really like all that you did to it, and love your picture on it. Great job!

A fabulous job indeed - I really love the Lumiere(?) paint and the fact that you made it specifically your own with all your special bits and your photo - it really is a great cover. Now, I hope you use the book for journalling all those creative urges!! And that you enjoy the process with the canvasses as well!
